AADL Catalog Bot

Superpatron strikes again!

Check out Ed’s screenshot of his IM bot that performs searches against the AADL catalog.

From the comments:

Another evening’s work produced this working (but buggy!) Google Talk robot that looks things up in the Ann Arbor District Library catalog.

Technology used: Jose Nazario’s from Ann Arbor’s DuckyLib library to do the RSS parsing of the AADL’s catalog, and Perry Lorier’s confbot (from Wakaito, New Zealand) to handle all of the Google Jabber stuff.

Feel free to add superpatronbot@gmail.com to your IM list, but there is no guarantee this or any other service will be on it – it runs on my laptop right now.
